The Tully River is Australia's best and most famous one-day white water rafting experience. It's North Queensland's ultimate white water, white knuckle adventure, with up to 5 hours of rafting over more than 45 rapids through World Heritage Rainforest.

The drive to Tully, 87 miles (140 kilometers) south of Cairns, is a scenic journey through cloud-covered coastal mountains, clear rivers and streams, fields of sugar cane and exotic fruits. Rafting in North Queensland has the advantage of departures all year round, tropical water temperatures and ease of access to compliment breath-taking scenery and rapids.

Rapids include the unforgettable "Alarm Clock", "Wet and Moisty", "Stair Case" and the dramatic "Theatre" - all before a riverside BBQ lunch opposite "Ponytail Falls" where time is made to replenish your batteries before the afternoon's remaining rapids.

All you need to bring is lace-up shoes (that WILL get wet), swim suit and towel (you will need to be wearing your swim suit at the time of pick up), a spare change of clothes and don't forget the 15+ sunscreen. You will be provided with safety equipment, including life jacket, helmet and spray jacket.

Australian White-water Rafting Grading System
Grades do vary when water levels vary. As a generalization grades tend to go higher as water levels increase because of the steep nature of river gradients in this country. These grades are referred to as the NORMAL grade. Below are the general characteristics of the grades of whitewater.

The Tully River is graded rapids up to 4.

RAPID GRADE (1) Rapids are small regular waves.
RAPID GRADE (2) Rapids with regular medium-sized waves (less than 1 meter)
RAPID GRADE (3) Rapids with reasonable-sizes waves (1-2 meters) with a need to hold on at times
RAPID GRADE (4) Difficult rapids with high, powerful, irregular waves. Continual maneuvering of rafts is required to negotiate rapids

It was Great trip I would recommend it hell I will be going back there again to do it again.

Reviewed by: Hiral D, March 2016

I will start will the little negatives first, when I booked this activity from viator the price did not include 30 levy per person nor did it mention any additional charges. I only came to know about it at a later date, although the additional cost itself was not a deal breaker but it is always nice to know the full cost. It probably is an issue with viator rather than the tour operator RagingThunder. This was our first river rafting experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it, missus is not an adventurous type of person so was apprehensive to start with but all the involved staff were really friendly and made sure we were safe at all times. Once we started there was no looking back and missus really enjoyed it. The food was good and the overall experience was fantastic. I have no hesitation in recommending this activity and operator.
